Chelsea will be away to West Ham in Saturday’s lunchtime kick off, and it’s the first game for match week 15.

It’s a massive London derby for Thomas Tuchel’s side, and Michael Owen is predicting a difficult game.

Nevertheless, Owen believes Chelsea would get a 2-1 victory.

Owen told BetVictor: “What a game to start the Premier League weekend! David Moyes must have been gutted to have conceded such a late equaliser to Brighton and West Ham are on a poor run of form at the minute. The good news is that they remain firmly in the top four race, but they need to start picking up more points.

“It wasn’t a dominating victory, but Wednesday’s win over Watford was vital for Chelsea. My only concern at the minute for them is the number of goals they are scoring. Lukaku is still working his way back to full fitness, so they need him back fit and firing.

“This will be a very even game, but I can see Chelsea narrowly edging it, 2-1.”
